As well as we could have hoped for really

its a normal version found in older ladies rather then an aggressive one found in younger

no treatment plan as yet though as they still need the herceptin results back to decide

we know we're not out of the woods yet though and there's still a long way to go

Hi, found this thread looking for info & support. I found a lump, left breast. I'm still breast feeding my nearly 1 yr old (have a 4yr old too) so I hoped it was a cyst. Went to drs & she put me on the 'cancer pathway' arghhh! Had my appt 2 weeks later at the hosp (Friday)where they did an ultrasound. This confirmed a solid lump so had a biopsy. The shock on my husbands face when the consultant said they didn't know if it was cancer or not...I felt more sorry for him than myself as he's the eternal optimist & thought it would be fluid. I get my results Thurs, the day before my son's first birthday. I'm so scared, my kids so young... & just hoping for good news x

I hope and pray you get good results, as for me thank God after waiting 2 1/2 weeks for my breast ultrasound result, I got a call yesterday from my Dr's office and I was told everything was good and that I just go back in a year. I am so blessed and I thank God, I will continue to keep all the ladies that go thru this in my prayers.

Brand new to all this so I'm not sure how site works. I noticed a lump just over a week ago after having inverted nipple for a while (so was vigilant) and I've just got back from doctor who says that she thinks it IS something and is referring me. Suddenly feel plunged into another world. I'm shocked. I'm not sure how to react.

Hi there, I know exactly how you feel. I've just come out of GP with urgent referral because of a big lump I found this week. No reassurance from the GP - it looks bad and I'm terrified. I'm 54 and have a been a complete fool and missed my mammograms. Feeling utterly sick and terrified. Don't know how something like that could

grow so quickly.  My husband has private health care so he's on the phone right now trying to see if I can be seen sooner than 2 weeks. I suppose all we can do is wait and get a diagnosis.

Hi

What was your diagnosis? I have no lump but the dr said I have thickening after a routine exam (which I couldn't even feel). I have the same ache/burn sensation all under my arm pit/shoulder blade ans even down my arm. This was put down to a trapped nerve in my shoulder 18months ago but obviously now with the breast thickening and the pain still there it's worrying.

I have an appointment in 11 days time under the 2 week rule but worried as have had rhis ache for 18months! 

Just wanted to know how you got on?
